We also like that this bedspread is reversible with a neutral colored backing. You may not always want the full effect of such brightly colored bedding. By covering your bed with the neutral side and folding the top down, you get a little pop of color, rather than the whole she-bang.
At $550, Ouno's bedspread is definitely a splurge item, but crafty folks can make their own patchwork bedcover cheaply using scarves bought at thrift stores. In the latest issue of Craft Magazine, Ouno Design's Lindsay Brown and Sarah Gee give step-by-step instructions on how you how to make one. How nice of them!
